EcoSmart Solution was recently featured in The Washington Post. The article goes into depth about our Geothermal technology that we use for our communities, along with some insight from the Energy Department’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. You can read the first part of the article down below.
“One of the most cost-effective ways to make your house more comfortable year-round could be right beneath your feet. Much of the heating and cooling can come from an energy-efficient source known as a geothermal heat pump.
These systems are similar to ordinary heat pumps, but use the ground instead of outside air to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, hot water. Because they use the earth’s natural heat, they are among the most efficient and comfortable heating and cooling technologies available today.
Geothermal heat pumps, also known as ground source heat pumps, can be used almost anywhere in the country because all areas have nearly constant shallow ground temperatures, although systems in different locations will have varied degrees of efficiency and cost savings.”
